Weather Now: Lighter Snow Showers End this Morning

News

What a night!  Snowfall rates of 1-3″/hour, thunder and lightning and in some spots more than a foot of fresh snow.  This is the biggest snowstorm of the season so far.

Totals ranged between 6 and 12″ across much of the area, but the “jackpot” was in northern RI through southern Worcester County and Boston’s western suburbs where amounts climbed to as high as 16″.  A little less fell near the coast where snow changed to sleet and rain overnight.  

Steady and accumulating snow has come to an end, but lighter snow/rain showers linger through mid/late morning.  Expect skies to turn partly sunny this afternoon with breezy northerly winds gusting 20-30mph.

Very cold air will settle in tonight adn black ice is a concern.  As temperatures drop, any damp pavement will freeze.

Well-below normal temperatures are expected for the rest of the work week.
